The 2008 SES had the same chrome grille and fascia as the SE. And yes, even the chrome fender 'vent'. While the '09-10 SES coupe and '10-11 Sedans got the black trim and unique fascia.
But 2008 did get the Euro suspension and stabilizer bar, at least, as the later years. That is what makes SES most special, I think.
2008 SES [2/4 doors] only had the 16 inch 'snowflake' rims. For 2009-10, SES coupe got the 17" dark rims standard, but optional on the '09 SES sedan. Then, for 2010-11, all SES 4 doors got the 17's.
